house, and his brother was gone. is there cracks in walls if it's happening underneath the house, or has anything like this happened in that neighborhood before? >> yeah, in fact, all around here. not right here in this neighborhood, but not too far off from here, they had a rash of sinkholes a couple years ago. you know, they believe it was from water being pulled out for farmland around here that actually opened up a cavern. but yeah, you can notice cracks in the walls and you can have inspectors come out and look at your house for signs that perhaps you have settling issues which could be indicative of a sinkhole, but in many, many cases, we have seen it over the years, anderson, where suddenly, someone will wake up and part of their bedroom is gone, part of their living room is gone, but tragically, in this particular case, this sinkhole just opened up right underneath where this man was lying in bed, and with no warning at all. and he was gone in a matter of instances. >> when you see the other sinkholes, the fire truck inside the hole, how -- ultimately, how do they get dealt with? do they just get filled up?
